|"Les Loups" by Slowdance - BTR Live Studio [ep65]|
Slowdance, a Brooklyn-based quintet, have a penchant for edgy indie-pop and for crafting songs in French. According to the band, their moody, keyboard-heavy stylings were influenced by Blondie and ‘70s synth-wave, so it’s no wonder that here, they sound sultry and submerged in hypnotic, humming electronics. Frontwoman Quayar Quinn-Settel -- seemingly mysterious and secretive, curtained by thick bangs -- recalls a cross between Tennis’ laid back Alaina Moore and the dynamic Karen O...

|Theory of Revolution // J*Davey|
To the strains of ?Smells Like Teen Spirit,? they descended on a ravenous crowd at SOB?s in New York City. Members of the audience?die-hard fans mingling with the uninitiated?were soon worked into a lather over the course of a 90-minute-set. Don?t be scurred, it?s just J*Davey?s world, baby. The LA-based duo struck a chord when we went bowling with them on the afternoon before the show. Seeing the inimitable Briana Cartwright (Miss Jack Davey, if you?re nasty) and Brook D?Leau playfully tear up ...

|Deidre & The Dark - BTR Live Studio [ep156]|
Deidre -- who also performs with the groups Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion -- recently expanded her own project to become the band Deidre & The Dark. Like a noir-inspired New Wave film come to life, the group touches on the blues, gypsy music, surf rock, 60s a-go-go and more behind their femme fatale singer. As the group celebrates the release of their "Classic Girl/Don't Blame Me Now" 7 inch, Deidre reveals some of the concept behind the project, explains how she creates characters, and...

|Summer Camp - BTR Live Studio [ep96]|
Indie pop band Summer Camp is made up of Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey. Hailing from England, the duo write dark and conflicted tales of love and longing, while their music is shrouded in nostalgia, sounding as though it’s of another time. The catchy, lo-fi tunes, like “Better Off Without You” and “Brian Krakow,” draw inspiration from playful 60s girl groups and yet simultaneously seem perfect for any 80s movie soundtrack (or an episode of My So-Called Life)...
